Memorial Courtyard Project Work Begins

Hey brothers! In case you haven’t heard, we are building a patio! It will be dedicated to the memory of our lost brothers. Construction has begun, and we will hopefully complete it before school starts in late August. Hopefully fully funded too!

The patio will include a vertical smoker, grill, prep station, benches, lighted walls and electrical/USB outlets. The lamp posts at the eastern entrances will have bronze dock lights. Our crest and letters will be prominently displayed on the front walls. The stone will be one-color concrete pavers to match the limestone on the house. The walls will look like the one design renderings pictured below.

Construction is being professionally done by Stone Deck, one of the Austin area’s premier patio builders. They have completed many projects around Georgetown, including at Southwestern University.

The total cost of the patio will be $75,000. We have raised about $47,000 so far! Only 28K to go! We can do it! We are counting on you, brothers, who have not yet stepped up to the Kappa Sigma plate. There are pledge classes out there with zero contributions! Hey, come on, we are all in this together!

Everybody knows our Iota brotherhood is one of the strongest around. Let’s prove it! There is a place to donate at the very bottom of this site. Please do it now! Let’s make our new courtyard the talk of the SU campus!


Donations can be sent by mail to Chris Mathers, Alumni Association Treasurer, 1124 24th Street, Galveston, Texas 77550, or by credit card (see below).

Update: 125th Weekend Packages & Costs


I hope this letter finds you well on this October 12, 2011, the 125th birthday of The Iota Chapter of Kappa Sigma. We have a grand celebration planned for the weekend of November 4-6.

We are getting concerns and complaints that Iota’s Celebration is too expensive.

We are adding two categories to the registration to make it more affordable. There is no memorabilia included in either one. The alumni “Basic” is $85. The guest “Basic” is $75.

The new registration form has these additions. If you have already registered and have sent in your package and would like to change, let us know and we can do that.

Memorabilia will be for sale at the event on a first come first serve basis.

Our celebration is 3 weeks away. Southwestern will order food for the banquet depending on the numbers we give them. We will order our refreshments on the same numbers so help us out and don’t delay.

I hope this letter will help clarify any doubts and lead to a successful gathering of the brothers and their friends on November 4-6. Events like these come once every 25 years so call your worthless pledge brothers and make sure they will be there. Iota Chapter has a totally remodeled house just waiting for a celebration! Let’s give it one that will be remembered for years to come!

Happy Birthday Iota!
